The Omni Mount Washington Resort

310 Mt. Washington Hotel Rd.
Bretton Woods , NH , United States
(603) 278-1000

The most famous of the Northeast's great old hotels is a 1902 Spanish-Renaissance Revival building that is now a National Historic Landmark. Its 200 high-ceilinged rooms still look much as they did when Winston Churchill and Babe Ruth crashed here. A good alternative for families are the 70 town houses linked to the resort by a shuttle.

CHECK THE SCHEDULE The weekly menu of Kids' Camp activities features: Monday fishing, Tuesday tennis, Wednesday cooking with the chef, Thursday golf with the pro, Friday kids' Olympics, Saturday "visiting artist," and Sunday, nature adventure. In between, kids squeeze in some swimming and croquet.

I THOUGHT I COULD Not far from the hotel, a steam-powered train takes a leisurely one and a half hours to chug its way up 6,288-foot Mount Washington by means of a cog railway. The first of its kind, it was built in 1869 and designed to allow a locomotive to negotiate a steep, often raised track. At the top, you're up above the clouds.
